CityStasher is the sharing economy’s answer to the problem of left-luggage. Our mission is for bag drop-offs to be affordable, accessible and secure in every major city. We are starting in our home town – London – where we are currently growing our network of hosts. We are primarily focused on signing up small businesses, which offer convenience, security (e.g. CCTV) and regular opening hours.
When we first launched, we were testing the market to see how people would use our service. Our findings – combined with market research – have convinced us that the left-luggage market is our niche.
Here’s some numbers to back that up. At Euston station, the prices charged are £6 for under 3 hours, £11 per bag per day, £56 for a week. Roughly 300 bags are stored every day. This suggests a daily turnover of £3300 – at one station!
At CityStasher, if you stored at our Woburn Walk StashPoint (100m from Euston), it costs only £5 per day, £25 per week. This is a great value alternative that let’s you save money and time (think of the queues you’ll avoid!)
Viva la revolucion!
